Belladonna or "deadly nightshade" has been used for centuries in herbal folk medicine, witchcraft and bottled for neighborhood apothecaries. This highly toxic plant can in small doses elicit hallucinations, or in larger doses, death. Belladonna was marketed as a pain reliever, often used to bring on "twilight sleep" as an anesthesia during childbirth. Belladonna was a staple among "fallen women," as diluted doses dilate the pupils, making the female appear to be more receptive to amorous advances.

We are thrilled and proud to present the glass work of Wendy from Creeky Beads in the UK. These headpins are lovely accent pieces that will inspire your choices for the color palettes in your work. The radiant simplicity of a head pin by Wendy will beautifully enhance to the artistry of your own designs. Each head pin has been chosen to complement Fallen Angel Brass components.

Wendy says:
"I have been making glass beads for about 6 years, following an obsession with making jewellery. I had the privilege of watching a lampworker at work and knew immediately that I had to try it. After investing in the equipment, my hobby (new obsession) began."

Being handmade, your particular headpins will vary slightly from the listing photo.
Headpins in the listing photo are representative the color, shape and style
